My Style Challenge: Abstract Midi Dress

As you read this, I'm overseas in a far off land! But I took a few outfit posts to go up while I'm gone.

It's not always easy to rock a midcalf hemline when you're a mere 5'1. But I have worn a midi skirt once or twice in style challenges of yore, and so when I saw this dress in a vintage and consignment shop in San Francisco earlier this year, I knew it could look amaze!

And hooray, I'm not wrong! If you haven't read my old posts on how to style a midi skirt or dress, let me note a few things. First, I made sure to define my waist with a belt. A longer hemline doesn't need to be in a bodycon silhouette, but it should show off your figure! And econdly, I wore tall heels in a somewhat nude color to make my legs look longer.
I'm wearing: Gianfranco Ferré dress from a vintage store in CA - anyone know what collection it's from? - Levi's denim jacket from a different vintage shop in CA, Nine West heels, Jill Stuart purse from Japan, H&M belt, P.A.M. vampire necklace, Amrita Singh bangles from ideeli, Oliver Peoples sunnies.
